1cupbutter(2 sticks unsalted butter - softened, at room temperature)
3/4cuplight brown sugar(packed)
2 1/2cupsall-purpose flour
10ozChristmas M&M candies
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, or the bowl of your stand mixer, cream together the softened butter, sugar, light brown sugar, vanilla extract, baking soda, and salt.
Add the eggs, one at a time, and combine until the mixture is smooth again. Add the all-purpose flour gradually, mixing until all of the flour has been incorporated into the dough. Gently fold in the Christmas M&M candies until the candy is distributed evenly in the cookie dough.
Portion out your Christmas M&M cookie dough using a rounded tablespoon amount, or a cookie scooper. Place each portioned dough ball onto the prepared baking sheets. Leave about 2 inch spacing between each cookie for spreading.
Bake on the middle oven rack at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 9-10 minutes, or until lightly golden on the cookie edges. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 2-3 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
